Greene County Still Looking For Pollworkers
Election Day is less than 24 hours away, but the Greene County Board of Elections could still use a few more poll workers.
Greene County Board of Elections Director Llyn McCoy states that the county is still short of people to work the polls Tuesday. She stated that usually there are four workers, two Republicans and two Democrats that are present at each of the county’s 146 precincts. But this year, due to a shortage of people, workers have been trained to work in team's of three.
"What we've spent the weekend doing is calling around and making sure that if we are short somewhere that we have at least three workers at the table," McCoy said.
With the number of workers at the bare minimum, McCoy is willing to train people tonight.
"We'll train somebody over the phone if somebody wants to volunteer tonight," she said. "We'll still do some training and get them there tomorrow morning."
Poll worker's earn more than $100 a shift and work from 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
